Hi Everyone,
I need to install a break away switch on my CRV so that I can legally flat two my 2014 CRV behind a motor home.

The question I have is where I can easily run the wire from the front of the car through the firewall and into the driver's side compartment.

Has anyone done this that can give me some advice on the best location to use to get the wire through the firewall?

Thanks in advance,

ED

Welcome to the forum! I'd love to see a picture of the switch in question. Or a link. There are several places on the firewall where harnesses and other stuff are fed through. Try looking at parts diagrams on the online parts suppliers' sites, such as hondapartsnow.com, etc., that show the firewall.

Find a rubber grommet (preferably unused) and poke a hole in it. Failing that, find a rubber seal through which some wires go. Poke a hole in it.

Once the wire is fully in place, seal up the hole with silicone glue.

Go on etrailers website and search for your breaking system, Chances are they have an installation video. They also post them on YouTube. I have a Blue Ox Pat 3 that I had installed, I looked at the installation and can’t even see how it was done! It does poke through a grommet in the firewall.
